I don't use the word because I know what it feels like to be the object of discrimination.
______________ Having left Alabama to serve in WWII, my dad met & married my Italian American mother and brought her back to live and raise a family in Birmingham.
It was before I came along... but from what I understand, they made her life sheer Hell from Day One: "I-TALIAN? Why didn't you just marry a 'N-word'?"
I didn't come along until they were living back in good ol', ethnically diverse, New Jersey.
When I fell in love with, and married a Jewish fellow, I got blasted with his family's version of the same kind of Bullshirt Discrimination.
Lumped with what you guyze don't even recognize as an issue or problem (easy to do when you're not the object of the discrimination) of sexual discrimination, of a life time of 'Being put in my place' as a "woman". WTF? So I'm still not considered to be a full PERSON In my Own Right?

BTW, Just WTHell was wrong with "NANCY PEL-O-SI"? (DRIPPING with all the derision "THEY" could possibly lump onto the 2 Italian female words.)
